Since its founding in 1914 as the Indiana University Training School for Nurses, the Indiana University School of Nursing (IUSON) has evolved into the state’s largest and most comprehensive school. IUSON educates a diverse population of 2,400 undergraduate and graduate students and has over 26,000 living alumni in the United States and around the world.
In her statement of support Marion E. Broome, PhD, RN, FAAN, Distinguished Professor and Dean of IUSON, said: "Nurses of the 21st century must be equipped to manage innumerable diseases and social issues amidst the rapid technological changes of the internet age."
By sending professionally competent nurses to destinations all over the world, Dr Broome says, the Indiana University School of Nursing continues the commitment to the Nightingale Declaration’s call for “creating a healthy world together.”
According Dr Broome: "Our School has had a long and rich history of educating nurses for our state, nation and the world.
"The School’s commitment to international affairs is an index of our global awareness and recognition that common health problems and issues have no boundaries.
"IUSON strongly endorses the Campaign’s goal of accomplishing a healthy world by the year 2020.
"I am extremely proud of our creative faculty and staff who, as active participants through innovative initiatives and partnerships, are making this happen in our own lives, in the life of our nation and in the world at large.”
Dr Broome was appointed university dean of the Indiana University School of Nursing (IUSON) on July 1, 2004. Widely regarded as an expert, scholar and leader in pediatric nursing research and practice, Dr. Broome’s research in pediatric pain and research ethics has been supported since 1991 by the American Cancer Society, National Institutes of Health (NIH) as well as private foundations.
Her research is published in over 86 articles in refereed journals in and outside of nursing, five books and 10 chapters in books as well as in several consumer publications. Her two most recent studies, both funded by NIH, are in the area of research ethics and informed consent for children.
Dr Broome has served as president of the Society for Pediatric Nurses, and been a board member of the Association for the Care of Children’s Health and the Midwest Nursing Research Society. Currently, she is serving as editor-in-chief of Nursing Outlook, the official journal of the American Academy of Nursing (AAN) and is a fellow of the AAN.
Broome received a BSN degree from Medical College of Georgia, a MSN degree from the University of South Carolina and a PhD in child and family development from the University of Georgia.
IUSON is a GOLD Sponsor of the Nightingale Declaration Campaign.
In 2008 & 2009, Asoka Roy’s family created a Platinum Sponsorship of the Nightingale Declaration Campaign to honor the memory of their sister — a pioneering nurse & midwife in both India & the United States. Projects developed from this contribution included an India-wide outreach of the Nightingale Declaration dedicated to Asoka’s memory.
